The Department of Special Collections and University Archives
within the Stanford University Libraries exists to arrange, describe, preserve, and make available documents of enduring historic value, both as intellectual items and as historical artifacts, to support the research needs of the undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and other scholars at Stanford University and beyond.
Stanford University Library curators actively seek out collections to enhance our holdings, primarily in the following areas: American History, American Literature, the history of the American West, Art and Architecture, British and Commonwealth History, British and Commonwealth Literary Studies, French and Italian Studies, Germanic Studies, Judaica and Hebraica, Latin American and Iberian Studies, Mexican American Studies, Religious Studies, Science and Technology, and Slavic Studies.
